The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Your legs are incredibly thick and it looks like you've dropped quite a lot of body fat between pics. Great work.

    A couple months? Awesome progress bro, you look wicked in comparisson. Legs look like a strongpoint all-around, kept most of your back mass while losing a ton of bellyfat, and upper body still looks large and lean. Chest has made progress but probably the least of all the other areas (I know how stubborn chest can be). Keep it up, it's working.

    OMG... huge legs! Got much better losing a lot of bodyfat... chest and shoulders need more work to get a good proportion. But congratulations either way... awesome results

    Good job Jeff, I think I saw a youtube vid of you doing some impressive lifting.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    Thanks guys. My upper body is lagging big time bad. I am slowly putting on some muscle since I am finally back on a sensible routine and diet. Hopefully the next year will see some great results for me. I don't need anymore leg mass but I noticed this evening after my workout my legs were looking even thicker. Nearly 26in legs looks a little much on a guy who is only 5'5.

    Bill- yeah I have several videos up. Not much good but they are what they are.

    Thanks all for the compliments and I am working on the whole package regardless if it looks like all I do is squat.

    You have a very similar physique to what I had at 210 lbs, except your legs are jacked.

    I don't do anything with calves. What you see is pretty much natural and built doing Forced Marches at Parris Island and Camp Lejeune. My calves were like this, probably a little bigger actually at around 150lbs.

    For my recent numbers just look in my log. Thats most important and relevant.
